1980-1992 BENTLEY Mulsanne/Eight Saloon specifications Classic and Performance Car

Rolls-Royce continued to build Bentleys as badge-engineered models with the Mulsanne of 1980. Named after the famous Le Mans straight, the alterations to the Silver Spirit included a black radiator insert and sports seats. The Eight, of 1984, departed further from the Rolls’ appearance though. The single rectangular headlamps were replaced by twin circular ones, a mesh radiator grille was fitted along with a front spoiler. It was enough to set the car apart from the Rolls-Royce and help kick-start a revival of interest in Bentley.
